MJF Addresses Comparisons To The Miz – CM Punk compared MJF to The Miz during his promo segment with the fellow AEW star on the November 24th episode of Dynamite.
Specifically, Punk called MJF a “less famous Miz.” This led to Edge referencing that remark during his segment with The Miz on Raw the following week during their promo segment.
MJF appeared on the ‘Throwing Down’ show on SiriusXM with Renee Paquette and Miesha Tate. During it, he was asked about the comment. MJF talked highly of the WWE star.
“You know, it’s so funny and I’ll be completely honest, I think Miz is a tremendous, tremendous, tremendous performer. Key word, ‘performer’… Yeah, and how can you not be [a fan of The Miz?] The guy is gold on the stick. In the ring, very solid too. I just think if I’m being completely fair here and it’s not me talking sh*t, it’s just factual. There are no holes in my game and that is not a jab at Miz. Miz is great, but he’s not me. Just like CM Punk isn’t me, just like Bryan Danielson isn’t me, just like Kenny Omega isn’t me. All of these guys are great but they’re all lacking in something. For the life of me Renee [Paquette], I’ve tried everything, I’ve studied my matches, my promos. There’s nothing I can’t do and it’s honestly disheartening sometimes because I’d like to get better but I can’t, you know? It’s like what’s even the point of trying anymore? It’s ridiculous.”
WWE has already confirmed that Edge vs. Miz will take place at its Day 1 pay-per-view event. On the flip side, AEW has yet to confirm exactly when MJF will wrestle Punk.
